His history stops well before Robert Guiscard’s invasion of Byzantium, which once again highlighted the problem of Byzantium. William of Apulia explained the cause of war in terms of the internal politics of Byzantium, which led to Michael VII losing his throne. As an afterthought he added that this upset Guiscard’s daughter Helena, who was married to the Byzantine emperor’s son and heir.

At this stage he shows scant interest in Byzantine affairs. 54 However, in the subsequent rewritings of William of Jumièges’ Deeds of the Norman Dukes Byzantium is given a much more prominent place. In a version (B), produced between 1097 and 1100, the story of Duke Robert’s pilgrimage to Jerusalem is greatly expanded. Now the duke is received by the Emperor in the city of Constantinople. He deliberately entered the city on a mule shod with gold to give the lie to the Greek calumny that the Franks were greedy for gold.

His De Legatione, in which he described his experiences as ambassador to the Byzantine court in 968, by contrast does not seem to have been much used. 3 The Antapodosis is very much a history of Liutprand’s own times. There is a strongly personal element to it.
